You have to wonder if we got our money’s worth. It cost more than $14million to find out that Brian Mulroney apparently fudged the facts a little about getting money from a German operative by the name of Karlheinz Schreiber. In the report released today, the Commissioner (whose name quickly will be forgotten) said that the 1993 and 1994 cash dealings between the former first minister and Schreiber were “inappropriate.” No surprise there! He also found that Mulroney’s failure to disclose those business and financial dealings was inappropriate. Simply put, Mulroney, in his business and financial dealings with Schreiber, failed to live up to the standard of conduct that he had himself adopted in the 1985 Ethics Code.” If there is anyone in this country surprised by those results, chances are they are a die-hard Mulroney fan or exceptionally naïve. The only question for me is why did we have to endure a $14million circus to learn something we already knew? If you chose the answer “because Stephen Harper wanted to distant himself from Mulroney even further,” you win the prize. It will be delivered in plain brown envelopes in a fast food restaurant somewhere in downtown Canada where there are no surveillance cameras!
